I would have loved to get my hands on this ’50s Helen Barbieri gown, but someone else snatched it up from Vintageous.
And I pondered this Bill Blass coat on Poshvintage.com but felt guilty about having so many coats already. I was relieved when someone else bought it and saved me from myself.
Separately, why on earth are so many people searching for “pink jacket wendy brandes“?!? It’s right up there with “Henri teh 8” in bringing people to this blog.
What a gown! It’s easy to see why it interested you.
They also described the color as “celery” which I found strangely appealing. I mean, I know I don’t have other celery dresses!
What a dress.
Jello on Springs says
It’s a shame they snatched up that dress
and haha, yeaa according to my stats one of the keywords googled that brings people to my blog is “jello for hair” @_@ yea I didn’t know there was jello for hair either, gel but not jello, lol.
wow i love the gown!! it’s so eclectic!!
Miss Woo says
That dress is gorgeous, it is a pity somebody bought it first. For some reason I find your ‘Henry teh 8’ search extremely funny and nearly made me spill my early afternoon coffee all over the computer. lol.
La Belette Rouge says
Maybe people are wanting to find Wendy jewelry to go with their pink jacket.
Kira Fashion says
thanks so much for passing!!!
I love both the gown and the coat! The search “high-waisted sailor shorts” always brings people to my blog, as well as “absinthe quotes”…?
I can always somehow justify coat purchases–they completely change your outfit AND they keep your warm. And looking fabulous. And . . okay, well, maybe I’m just a coat whore.
Also, whoops, wrong email!
“Jello for hair” LOL! Re my search, the weird thing is it has my name in it…I am not famous for wearing pink jackets! Is it people who know me saying, “I wonder if she’s worn a pink jacket. I’ll Google it!” What’s that about? I like that “Henry teh 8” has now evolved to “Henri teh 8″…the “i” makes it even more special.
Too bad the gown is exquisite the colors would look excellent on you.
I want that coat I want that coat I want that coaaaaat!!!!!

I’m not really a dress person but that gown is very different.I love blod loud colors!
The Bee is out!
“I was relieved when someone else bought it and saved me from myself.”– that is too funny. But I do know what you mean. If that happened to me half the times I’ve been shopping, I’d be a rich girl right now.
BTW, love your site.
Pretty Girl says
Very pretty pieces, I would have loved to have a coat or dress like that.
Thank you, Marleaux! Aretha, neither of us can have the coat 🙁
Vintage Bunny says

In Yr Fshn says
I agree… bummer you couldn’t get it. It would look lovely on you, especially with the red lipstick.
LOVE the dress! and the coat! wow!
I love the dress
whoever got it is lucky
Wendy I wish you’d won the coat… and well I wish you’d won the dress too because I know the photos of you would have been FABULOUS and I know that *you* don’t have weird knee colors. Even though you wouldn’t have seen them in either ensemble.
Lady N says
Kian, it’s not the weird colors I’m worried about..it’s knee WRINKLES! My knees need Botox! Oh, the shame.
I watched a program, Runway, last evening on Bravo. Your dress reminded me of that.
Thanks for visiting my birds blog.
That dress was really lovely, it’s a pity you couldn’t get it
The Narcist says
that coat is so gorgeous that i don’t know how you could ever feel guilty for owning it!
That first dress is really beautifull!
The Clothes Horse says
Ha! It’s so funny what people search for (and find).
The coat is awesome! I love outerwear! 🙂
ooh I wish I could say I was the owner of that jacket!
It’s reassuring to see that so many other people are addicted to outerwear!
Shopaholic D says
wow – that first dress is amazing! good thing it’s sold or i might run up my credit card more than i should!
@ Shopaholic, wasn’t it nice of the buyer to help us out that way? So considerate!
gorgeous and i could have definetely pictured you in it…YOU SHOULD HAVE BOUGHT IT!!
Shaz, I know…I wouldn’t have had a moment of regret! What was I thinking?
